The 2016 Chai Society

Chabad of the West Coast with The Shul of Blouberg West Coast and the Sinai Academy, creates a positive Jewish experience for hundreds of Jewish families on the frontier of South African Jewish assimilation.

From the 300 people that pass through our doors in the High Holidays, the 75 children that come through the doors of the Sinai Academy, and the countless others whose lives are positively influenced through one of the many programmes, email newsletters, events, classes and experiences that we create across Cape Town and South Africa.

The Chai Society is a group of generous individuals who, with contributions of anywhere between R108 and R1,080,000, provide the financial resources for our community.

Our overall deficit - fundraising goal for 2016 is R2,826,000. To reach that goal we need the partnership of 156 partners at R18,000 or 1,560 partners at R180, or any combination of the options around that.

Join the 2016 Chai Society with any contribution in multiples of R180 and help secure the future of our community. Thanks to a Founder of the Society, every contribution you make will be matched 1 to 2, so your contribution is increased by 100 percent.
